London Marathon

It was London Marathon day today so we avoided the areas busy with the race.

Covent Garden is always busy so we started there to give us the best chance of clear shots. It worked!

Trafalgar Square was next but was starting to get busy. Shots worked mainly above head height. Good blue sky with a few clouds to help.

Leicester Square was still a building site, as it was on our last visit 13 months ago. No photos here so on to Piccadilly Circus. Eros was good against a blue sky.

Then time to change to the business area around Bank and Leadenhall. Photos of the Bank of England, Royal Exchange, the Gherkin, Leadenhall Market, Monument, and a very interesting building behind New City Hall. Oh, I also took a shot of the London Marathon from near London Bridge.

My back was painful after all of this so we had an early finish, just as heavy rain started. Later on liquid refreshment helped the recovery, this time in Wetherspoons near Tower Bridge on the south bank.

Forgot to take a digital image on phone to illustrate this post, sorry. Just 26 rolls of Ilford FP4 120 film exposed so far (260 negatives in total).

Last day tomorrow.
